It should either be illegal to have early voting or it should be illegal to
report on the results. People are effected by what they see in the early vote,
which negates the notion of independent voting.
@ A guy with a brainI hear you brother! I am constantly shocked and
amazed that anyone jumps on the Gingrich bandwagon. He is bombastic, conceited,
and makes promises that are outrageous. A moon colony is only the start of it.
Today he promised to undo 40% of Obama's work on the first day he is in office
with "executive orders." Talk about a liar, he acts as if there is no
congress as the voters lap it up as him being bold.He panders to the
basest of emotion: anger, envy, fear, and frustration to get votes. He takes
zero responsibility for his own failings and instead blames "the
moderators" or "the liberal media" or "Romney."He promises all over to run a positive campaign and then says that he
will only run "the facts" and then slides into full on below the belt
warfare in a matter of a few days. He complains like a child about
the ad Romney runs that got "4 Pinocchios" and was not totally
accurate (hey - it was not a $300,000 ethics FINE it was a PENALTY - huge
difference according to Gingrich) and then he puts out the most ridiculous
political movie against Romney that got torched by political fact checker
sites.If Santorum ever surged and it looked like he was going to
beat Romney, I would rest easy. Santorum is honorable and would never make the
USA the laughing stock of the world. Gingrich on the other hand would
accomplish that "his first day in office" and every day. I would
never vote for Gingrich, EVER.
Anybody else want to vomit over Newt's incessant, false accusations against Mitt
Romney?- Gingrich is an outsider? How is a repeatedly elected
congressman and former Speaker of the House an "outsider"?-
Gingrich has morals that go hand-in-hand with Mom and Pop Smith on Main Street
America? Not unless Mom/Pop cheat on their spouses (plural).- Gingrich is
for Republican values? You mean like attacking the very notion that a person is
entitled to keep what they earn? (this is what he's doing in attacking Mitt's
wealth, viciously saying Mitt is nothing more than a corporate raider. Ever
hear of Staples? Sports Authority? Domino's Pizza? Bain Captial helped GROW
jobs.- Gingrich is Reagan's torch-bearer? Then why did Reagan mention
Gingrich only ONCE in his AUTObiography? Fellow conservatives: we
are all angry at the idiotic federal government, but just because someone is
angry (like Newt is) does NOT mean that their anger is valid / actually directed
at those that caused the problem. I can be angry and grab a microphone at a
public event and rail against a rude clerk at Home Depot but are they the ones
that caused the problems in our federal government? Of course not. At its
essence, Newt is angry, but his wrath is directed at the wrong people. Morality
and ethics ALWAYS matters because poor character always results in poor vision
& direction. Because of this, the one who should be receiving Newt's anger
is Newt himself. The fact Newt is berating everyone but himself is the reason
so many of us conservatives are sick of him.
@ PaganThey "think" Iowa went to Santorium by 34 votes.
But there were several precints that were lost and those votes weren't counted.
Every Democrat says Gore defeated Bush in the popular vote but there
were a million absentee ballots not counted in California. That was because
Gore won the State by a margin over 1 million, but in the entire country's
totals, it wasn't so. My point is: With uncounted votes how do you
know who won?Romney proclaimed Iowa a virtural tie and coming from
that state, that's a pretty good showing for him.I do agree with you
about two things: Romney most likely will win and "don't count your
chickens before they hatch."Too bad character and keeping
promises holds so little value these days.
From the folks who give us pants up to the armpits, our cuban policy and hanging
chads, not to mention jeb bush...we are once again looking for guidance. We
haven't learned yet.
'If you check the 2008 stats at realclearpoltics website, with the exception of
Arizona, Mitt won all the states in February by large and comfortable margins.'
- LDSareChristians | 4:05 p.m. Jan. 30, 2012 And...
still lost the Republican nomination... in 2008. I will
concede that Romney is most likely to win. But to look at past defeats as a
precurser to victory...? Well, 'don't count your eggs before they
are hatched.' Romney proclaimed himself the winner of Iowa as
well. That, went to Rick Santorum.
Mitt is set to win Florida!The 6 primaries in the month of February
are in the bag. If you check the 2008 stats at realclearpoltics website, with
the exception of Arizona, Mitt won all the states in February by large and
comfortable margins. The obvious winner in Arizona last time, is endorsing Mitt
this time.So, the 6 primaries after Florida will be easy wins for Mitt.Washington State Mar 3rd, I haven't studied it yet.Mar 6, Super Tuesday,
11 states: Alaska (my state), Wyoming, Idaho, Mass, ND, Vir (Mitt only one on
ballot) all easy. Hard to get will be GA, Tenn, OK, because of evangelical vote.
OH and Vermont, probably on momentum will go for Mitt.After Mar 6th? Well,
McCain has endorsed Mitt. Many of the states that went with him last time will
probably go with Mitt this time.If you look at the wiki site primary
results, all the yellow states (Mitt) and most of the Green (McCain) states from
2008 should go for Mitt. Most of the blue (Huckabee/Evangelicals)will probably
go for Newt/other.Go Mitt 2012
